Looking for a cultural, musical and uniquely entertaining way to spend your Sunday evening? If so, then look no further than Strong Auditorium where UR’s Ballet Performance Group will hold their premier show of the semester.

While the group did perform as part of the Meliora Weekend show, “Dance3” this weekend’s extravaganza will be a bigger and better representation of this club’s refined talent.

“This weekend’s performance we hope will be the biggest one yet. We have the largest number of performers in the history of the Ballet Performance Group and have been working very hard at making this another great show,” said junior and Ballet Performance Group publicity chair Jessica Marcinkevage. “This is a once in a semester opportunity to watch some great dancing.”

Last semester’s show, “Strike a Pose,” included many classical ballet pieces, as well as a second act entirely comprised of student-choreographed pieces, such as a salsa-type dance to the music of Shakira and a company piece to Madonna’s “Vogue.”

This year, the group will follow the same successful approach of last semester’s performance, with a classic first act of excerpts from the famous ballet “Swan Lake.” A second act of student choreography and a finale company piece performed to “Rhythm of the Night” from the hit film “Moulin Rouge” will make this performance especially unique.

With so much talent at UR, opportunities to see professional quality shows on campus abound. This weekend’s ballet show is no exception. Further, with a ticket price of only $3, almost anyone can afford to enjoy the fine arts at UR.

Tickets for this 7 p.m. show may be purchased at the Common Market or at the door.Ballet brings classical dance to UR
